AC Milan vs Napoli
Italy – Serie A
Date: Sunday, 18 September 2022
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Stadio Giuseppe Meazza.

Reigning champions AC Milan lock horns with current toppers Napoli this Sunday at the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza – and sparks are sure to be produced on both ends of the pitch.

AC Milan secured the title the last time around with 86 points against their name, and they lost just four times all through the campaign.

They scored goals in huge numbers all through this stretch, and particularly so at home, they dominated opponents without mercy.

Going on, they are determined to give their absolute best to retain the title, and so far they remained unbeaten in the competition.

They scored the second-most number of goals of all the teams in the tournament, and disregarding just two draws, they have a 100% winning record as well. In fact, one of these two draws came against the in-form Atalanta.

Meanwhile, Napoli secured a third-place finish the last season in the Italian top flight, and they even managed to score five more goals than the champions.

And this time around, they raced to the top of the table, and scored the most number of goals in the competition. Moreover, they too have a 100% winning record, barring just two draws.

Going on, goals also came in plenty whenever these two teams locked horns in the past – and judging all these observations, expect a high-scoring affair this Sunday between these two titans.
